Be Kind to Your Webfooted Friends

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may somebody's mother
Be kind to the denizens of the swamp
For they are dillies through and through
...   ...   ...

Now you may think that this is the end
Well it is.

The versatile band of the Royal Canadian Regiment
sparkled at its musical best today at Beck Collegiate. It was the middle point in a series of music
apprecation concerts for London high school students. Designed for many tastes, the concerts included light classics, folk tunes, novelties, popular pieces and martial airs and the march. The concerts were arranged by Earle Terry, director
of music for London schools.   (London Free Press)
